Such a fun tour with amazing guide! After a morning of exploring Giza, it was wonderful to learn about Cairo food and culture. Sherif was very knowledgeable and charisamtic. We had such a great evening and learn so much about Cairo and tasted delicious food.

Sherif is a great guide and the tour was amazing. We've been able to try all kind of traditional egyptian food which we have never managed to discovered by ourselves. Sherif also explained us a lot about history, tradition and lifestyle of the Egyptian people. And beyond all of this, he is a great person to talk with. We just booked the next tour with him. Highly recommend to everyone who comes to Cairo and it is looking for a great guide.

Arriving in Cairo was overwhelming at first, but sherif made us feel at ease instantly. We were the only ones on the tour that day, and it just felt like we were going out with an old friend in Egypt, showing us the best places to eat. We went on another tour with sherif the next day and it was awesome also!
